The automotive industry is not only a symbol of mobility, but also a driver of technology. From the first vehicles of the 19th century to the highly developed vehicles of today, the automotive industry has experienced an impressive development.

There is more to a car than just mechanics

Modern vehicles are turning more and more into “computers on wheels” and are becoming increasingly interconnected with their surroundings. Thanks to our extensive experience in telecommunications, electrical engineering and software, IT & computer technology, we are the ideal partner for both automotive manufacturers and automotive suppliers when it comes to the protection of innovations.
